Question about Singer 6510 Sewing Machine
My machine will sew a straight stitch, but not a zigzag. The needle becomes stuck in the down position. Any solutions?
The hook is located where your bobbin is. Remove the bobbin and place your machine in the most extreme zigzag position. Turn the wheel manually and watch the needle when it goes into the bobbin area. The hook (sharp) should pick up the upper thread. If it doesn't then you will most likely need to advance the hook slightly. If you don't know how there are good instructions that are free in the internet.

Depends on what kind of machine you have. Most of the time incorrect threading is the problem. The needle may be not be tightened in properly, or you may not have selected the correct sequence for zig-zag. Hope this helped a little.
